White Rage

So noted homophobe and racist douchebag Chuck Dixon and some other loser not even worth mentioning are throwing a hissy fit and demanding we bring back white supremacy to comics.

I’m sure this is all objective and has nothing to do with the fact that Dixon’s career has tanked because enough of us have gotten fed up with his bigoted bullshit.

As if that wasn’t pathetic enough, fellow racist and homophobe John “Blonde Latinas/Hispanic Women Look Like Hookers” Byrne is throwing a hissy fit his damn self because that uppity colored boy is going to portray the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four reboot. 

I find it interesting that I never hear about the whitewashing that takes place in comic book movies (Fox from Wanted, Talia and Bane from Dark Knight Rising for starters). But let some PoCs get some screentime and then it’s nerd rage with swastikas to boot.

And before they or their apologists start crying about free speech or first amendment, a message from our friends at xkcd.com

And for the Dixons and Byrnes of the world, I only have one question to ask:

The Top 5 Graphic Novels You Should Check Out

Hello everyone and welcome to a Top 5 list of Graphic Novels that you should check out that are NOT superheroes nor are from Marvel or DC Comics.

There is also a really good review of Kevin Keller’s mini series, which is part of the collected work that I reviewed, done by my good buddy Dennis Upkins that you can check out here and here.

In looking at the list, you’ll notice a few things about it:

1. No books on the list have a straight, white, cisgender, and able bodied male as the lead.

2. Women and women of colour are the leads in 4 of the 5 books.

3. There is LGBTQ representation in 3 of the 5 books.

Yes, I collect some Marvel and DC Comics, but those comics are few and far between, and more often than not they’re not the new comics coming out today. If the Big Two are not willing to change for the better and faster, then people WILL go elsewhere for comics, and they’ll find better alternatives that reflect who they are.
